I do these medical energy readings in hopes I learn some alternative ways for us to move forward without feeling at the mercy of the medical system. I hope to help find an integrative approach to get power back into our hands and to seek support with doctors who are educated to help us create a happy healthy state of being.
Looking into Menopause was fascinating and brings a new meaning to ‘hidden in plane sight’ for me. So many of our symptoms our dealt with allopathic-ally because presently, the medical system would rather not take the whole person approach. I do this reading with no bias but with a whole person perspective. I try to open your mind to understanding there are oils, herbs to help calm, support and accommodate dramatic changes that seem to be presently happening in the body.
- Menopause; Possibly all symptoms are effecting
- Addictions to sugars and caffeine
When looking at all the phases of menopause, there is so much information that isn’t being shared properly about how the biological feminine processes work. Culture, politics, ancestral, religions as well as feminine and masculine relationships have been stressed to move in a specific direction. It is important to keep in mind we created blurred lines when we have separated our lifestyle from mind, body and emotions. All three are important and are created to work together. If not taken consciously, foods, medication and vaccinations work to support this separation.
Naturally, us women are set forth on our journey in life with a preset (pre-menopause) goal of creation on earth. What we do with it is our choice but ultimately we must take care of ourselves through the process. All journeys have there ups and downs, ebs and flows and forks in the road. Along the way our body lets us know where we are at through the journey (peri-menopause). Our mind is our focus (important part of masculine energy) and if relationships throughout our journey has had a masculine strain in some way or another (the men represented in our life), then we become detached (create walls) from our own body’s messages.
Recognizing your body’s sign of distress and understanding that it is struggling with communicating with other parts of your body is a great first step. Our core essence is stored within our sacral chakra and is filtered through the bladder and kidney channel. The adrenal and the thyroid glands help keep your preset goal and soul essence in balance. Just like running in a marathon there is a beginning, a middle, and an end. Your body prepares ahead for each phase rather you are conscious of it or not. (that is the strength of your own unique masculine energy). Note that your liver acts as the bridge between your emotions relaying to the body and mind. It is important to help the liver detox every once and awhile to alleviate the anger and frustration that becomes stagnant within.
In essence you can fight against the feminine process or work with it. I suggest the latter. It is important for women to be comfortable with who they are and where they are on the creation journey. Our children and their children depend on the creative, supportive and connective processes that are passed through the generations; and not just that of separation, sacrificing or feeling segregated. The journey is part of the natural order of life. It is sacred and part of our unique sacral energy.
When we accomplish menopause, which is a one day event, the life force known as estrogen will no longer be needed in our body for reproduction. We will have accomplished the natural process of passing the ‘baton’ to our supports within the body; lifestyle choices, relationships and our environment will follow suite when we listen to our body mind and soul needs.
